Chapter 239 (Gaiden 1): "Mission Start...!!" – Introduces Uchiha


Obito, Rin and the Fourth Hokage. This begins the first chapter of the
Hatake Kakashi side-story flashback, which takes place approximately
13 years before the start of the Naruto series during a war with Hidden
Rock. At a meeting to hear their new mission, Kakashi receives gifts
for advancement to Jounin from his teammate Rin and his Jounin
sensei, the man who will become the Fourth Hokage. His other
teammate Obito has forgotten a gift and becomes annoyed at Kakashi.
Kakashi dismisses Obito as useless but Obito says once he awakens his
Sharingan he will surpass Kakashi. The Fourth Hokage tells his team
their mission so they travel through the Grass Country. Spied on from
the Trees beyond by a ninja from Hidden Rock, Kakashi activates his
new move the Chidori.
Chapter 240 (Gaiden 2): "Teamwork!!" – Kakashi bolts away to
attack their hidden foe. Faced with numerous Kage Bunshin, Kakashi
cannot find the original ninja. The Rock-nin uses the mayhem to attack
a defenseless Obito. But the quickness of the Fourth Hokage rescues
Obito and then he instantly transports in the blink of an eye using his
Shunshin Jutsu (Instant Body Technique) to the location of their foe.
The Rock-nin is shocked to have faced "Konoha's Yellow Flash" and
fallen to him so easily. Kakashi calls Obito a coward and Obito later
asks the Fourth why Kakashi acts the way he does. The Fourth Hokage
tells him of how Kakashi's legendary father killed himself after the
village looked down on him for rescuing his teammates rather than
completing his mission.

Chapter 241 (Gaiden 3): "A True Hero" – After Rin uses her
abilities to heal one of Kakashi's wounds, the Fourth Hokage tells the
team they are now splitting up. Kakashi then leads his team further
into Rock territory to destroy their objective bridge. Two Rock-nin
appear and ambush the trio; they manage to capture Rin and flee.
Obito tells Kakashi he is going after Rin but Kakashi says they should
complete their mission. Obito yells at Kakashi telling him his father
was a true hero when he protected his precious friends. Obito then
goes off on his own to save Rin.

Chapter 242 (Gaiden 4): "Crybaby Ninja" – The Fourth Hokage


arrives to help outnumbered Leaf-nin in battle by using his Shunshin
ability to take out their large number of opponents. Elsewhere in the
Grass Country, Kakashi reflects on Obito words. Obito himself finds
Rin's location but he is snuck up on by an invisible Rock-nin. Kakashi
arrives to save Obito but gets his left eye slashed in the process. Obito
is scared and begins to cry but he reaffirms himself and finally
activates his Sharingan. Using it he sees his invisible attacker and kills
him.

Chapter 243 (Gaiden 5): "Present" – Kakashi bandages his eye


and the two Leaf ninja approach a cave to save the weakening Rin
from the remaining Rock ninja. Using their skills they strike the Rock-
nin and save Rin. The Rock-nin manages to cause a cave-in though
and Obito is crushed under the rubble when he saves Kakashi from
being hit. Knowing his life is over he tells Rin to remove his eye and
give it to Kakashi to replace his damaged one. Obito tells Kakashi he is
a great ninja and that he can become Kakashi's eye and help them all
live on. A short time passes and Kakashi emerges from the rubble a
holder of the Sharingan.

Chapter 244 (Gaiden 6): "Heroes of the Sharingan" – When


Kakashi emerges he strikes out against the Rock-nin and manages to
kill him using his fully perfected Chidori. Rock ninjas arrive and cause a
further cave-in, forcing Rin and Kakashi to leave Obito behind as the
rubble envelops him. Angered, Kakashi goes to fight his opponents but
he passes out from a lack of chakra. Rin uses the Fourth Hokage's gift
to Kakashi, a special Shunshin kunai, to bring the Hokage to their
location to save them. Kakashi awakens to find their enemies
defeated. The Fourth Hokage apologizes for not getting there more
quickly. The remaining team members cherish their memories of Obito
and go on to destroy the bridge.
